I got a blue snowball ice around a year ago, when I unplugged the cable to plug it in somewhere else. the plastic piece got stuck in the cable. This is what I mean by the plastic piece: https://gyazo.com/af7a1f726a013fccea9c3a22c2231f76

How can I fix this? Thanks!

Update: I managed to take the little piece out, but I have no idea how to put it back in where it belongs, if someone can link a tutorial, that would be great, thanks!

You've managed to pull out the centre of the usb connector, it's there to keep the pins separated. If you are careful and the pins aren't bent you may be able to put a small amount of superglue on the end of the plastic piece and reinsert it into the connector ( use a small pair of needle nose pliers or tweezers). Make sure the pins line up and stay in the grooves on the plastic. Other than that the usb socket would need to be desoldered and replaced.

How do I know if its bent or not? What do the pins normally look like?
